Why Capros® Is the Superior Amla
The two most important amla polyphenols are tannins named Emblicanin A and Emblicanin B.
Emblicanins are different from many other antioxidants because they 1) do not have any pro-oxidant properties and 2) have “cascading” antioxidant activity.
If a polyphenol has “pro-oxidant” properties, it means that while it provides antioxidant activity, under certain circumstances it can do the opposite, and act as a pro-oxidant and create more free radicals.
Some factors that help determine a polyphenol’s pro-oxidant potential include its metal reducing properties (how it reacts when encountering metals like iron and copper), chelating behavior, pH, and solubility characteristics.
Since most of us are looking for polyphenols to help neutralize free radicals and not create more free radicals, it helps to supplement with polyphenols that have little or no pro-oxidant activity.
And that’s what you get from the Emblicanins in amla!
But that’s not all. The Emblicanins in amla have another unique feature that helps contribute to their potency.
You see, many antioxidants exhaust themselves after neutralizing a free radical, and their remnants aren’t much help in your body’s continuing fight against free radicals.
On the other hand, after neutralizing a free radical, Emblicanins switch on a multilevel cascade of antioxidant compounds that help your body from being overwhelmed by free radicals.
In other words, the remnants of Emblicanins don’t exhaust themselves. Instead, the resulting metabolites also have antioxidant properties to continue supporting you in the battle against free radicals.
As you can imagine, being able to prolong free radical scavenging effects help make Emblicanins more valuable to the body.
However, the quality of amla extracts can vary widely.
The premier amla extract for use in supplements in branded as Capros®. Here are some of the features of Capros® that make it different…
• Only FRESH amla fruit is used, to help ensure stable polyphenols
• No pesticides are used
• No harsh solvents are used in the extraction process
• Each batch is tested for microbials and heavy metals, and perhaps most important…
• Capros contains a minimum of 60% polyphenol tannins, much more than ordinary amla extracts
As important, Capros® has been the subject of numerous published research studies demonstrating many potential cardiovascular health benefits.
No other amla extract we’re aware of has the depth of scientific support as does Capros®.
